Our Core Plays product gives you the ability to tail all of our analysts in your contests each night. We do the work for you, and you simply plug and play with our premium Core Plays. With that being said, let’s hop into the plays…
Just popping up as questionable now but ih he plays, consider him the top play of the slate! It is a rather small slate and that makes spend ups rather chalky. The Kings have been pretty mediocre when it comes to defenseand there is no AD for a while. This makes for a very tasty position for Lebron to be in. Averaging over 50 fantasy points a game and we have him projected for close to 60 as an average with a ceiling of damn near 75. Consider him a must if ruled in and if he is ruled out the same applies for Russell Westbrook.
This one is a no brainer with the new that CJ has been ruled out and Jonas is questionable. I would assume Jonas sits this one out and they just rest him on a back to back. The bench players have been playing extremely well when called upon. Alvarado should be in line for 30+ minutes and a huge bump in usage rates. Personally think they can still keep this close as Dallas has been pretty meh outside of Luka Doncic. He is under 4k on Draftkings and 4.6k on Fanduel. This is the most skewed price on the entire slate and he is a MUST across all contests!
Note: Keep up with injury news and I will tag everyone as soon as it drops in the Discord channels as it should change the slate drastically!
Just Like Alvarado, Marshall is solid value tonight with injuries to the majority of the starters. Keep an eye on Jonas injury news cause if he sits I would consider Nnaji as the top offensive option on this team tonight. Last night he put up over 40 fantasy points with CJ and Jonas on the court. To some extent, them being on the court help him succeed more. I think he can still find succes against the Mavericks with a price tag at 5-5.2K across all sites.

I think you should be able to fit him in across all sites but he is line for a big game. The Lakers have struggled against big men since Davis was sidelined. Bryant has been solid for them but he will have hhis hands more than full tonight. If Lebron sits, they will just force feed him all night as they really have nobody who can keep up with him.
